Altar (2007) Anton is a former boxer who retired upon accidentally killing an opponent in the ring during a prizefight in the U.S. Returning to the Philippines, he finds himself destitute and jobless. He is hired by a mysterious foreman named Erning who assigns him and a companion named Lope to renovate a lone, decrepit house on a hill at the outskirts of Metro Manila. While working in relative isolation in the house, an apparition of a ghostly child appears to Anton seeking his help to release her from the clutches of a demonic-looking entity dressed in a cloak and mask, who enslaves the little girl inside the second-story room of the house. Despite specific instructions not to open the locked basement door of the house, the mischievous Lope's insatiable curiosity leads him to do the exact opposite. He inspects the contents of that peculiar cellar of the home. Standing against a corner wall of the room, he finds a large antique wooden altar on top of which is the carved bust of a strange dark woman, eyes shut, seemingly in peaceful prayer. One creepy event leads to another. The men make the acquaintance of a pair of pretty maids, Angie and Giselle, who work for one of the neighborhood's other households. Anton and Angie quickly develop a budding romance and he solicits her help to unlock the ghostly house's strange and dark mystery. Little does Anton know that his arrival in the house was never sheer coincidence, but the deliberate, nefarious plan of a mysterious figure doing the bidding of a truly terrifying and evil force. Bloodcurdling events occur, one after the other, till all these snowball towards a violent climax.

Movie Trivia:
  • The film won Best Film in Montevideo Fantastic Film Festival of Uruguay, 15-22 May 2009.
  • The room where the altar is located is approximately 20 square meters only with a very low ceiling. Shooting the scene where Nor Domingo (Lope) was being sucked into the Altar was next to impossible. The scene involves rigging and 6 people to pull the cables to execute the stunt and 2 to operate the wind machine. 12 people were in this small room to finish this scene.
